Hello, my name is Jenny Rager. I am currently a student a
Michigan University. My major is science and my minor is language
arts. I would love to one day be a middle school science
teacher. I still have one more year of school left to get my
teachers certificate. I will be student teaching in the winter of
2007. I will then graduate that April of 2007. I am really
excited about that, I can't wait to be the one in front of the
classroom. I have recently been substituting for the Roseville
Community Schools District. While there I have subbed all grades
from kindergarten to high school. I have also had the chance to
sub in the Hearing impaired resource room. I got the chance to
see some of the technology they are using in those
classrooms. Teaching is not the only career I plan to
have. I plan on attending University of Detroit Mercy to receive
my Masters Degree in School Counseling. When I receive that I
hope to be a school counselor in a High School setting. I may
still have a lot to accomplish, but I'm ready and willing to do
what I need to get where I want to be in life. The following
